The Yellow studio...Same but different.
Following ten hectic days finishing and framing my prints, working with the gallery to hang them, and paintings and drawings by my two co-exhibitors Peter Wallfried and Simon Kneebone, our exhibition The Same But Different opened on Friday night. Peter, Simon and I meet regularly on Friday mornings to chat about life, art and how to save the world over coffee and when this opportunity of exhibiting arose we decided to give it a go. Peter is a painter and his work for this exhibition explored landscapes around Adelaide and his interest in cars all seen at night. Simon's whimsical drawings and water colours, mainly landscapes, are his first step into the world of exhibiting in a gallery. We had a good crowd turn up and it was great to catch up with friends and meet and talk to people interested in my work. I even sold a few which was nice. John Whitney, a fellow artist and friend, opened the show for us which we appreciate greatly.
Next day my wife and I decided to do something completely different. We visited an art gallery. The Art Galley of South Australia is currently exhibiting works by some group called the Impressionists. Paintings are on loan from the Musée d'Orsay and the exhibition follows the development of Impressionism in the last half if the 19th Century. Overall it wasn't too bad compared to our exhibition :). I thought some bloke named Cezanne was pretty good.
